Step 1: fry the onion with bacon.

Heat a little vegetable oil in a pan. Cut the onion and bacon into small cubes and sauté until golden brown.

Step 2: prepare the potato mass.

Mash boiled potatoes with a pusher or a fork, which is more difficult, but such a small amount of potatoes can be handled.
Add mashed flour and egg, mix.

Next add onion, bacon and salt and pepper. Mix the mixture very carefully again.

Step 3: sculpt potato balls.

Combine breadcrumbs with chopped corn flakes.

Hand roll the balls from the potato mass and roll them well in a breading.

Step 4: Fry the Potato Balls with Bacon.

Heat a sufficient amount of oil in a pan and dip potato balls into it, fry them until golden brown on all sides.
After frying, pat them with a paper towel to remove excess fat.

Step 5: serve the potato balls with bacon.

Serve the balls hot while they are still crispy. With tomato or garlic sauce is simply excellent! A tasty snack or an interesting addition to the main dishes.
Enjoy your meal!
